In a survey of Great British designs last year the iconic red phone box, designed by Sir Giles Robert Scott in 1924 came out on top with almost 40% of the vote. At Bowler & Beach we appreciate the rich history in design that Britain has, whether it is in architecture, fashion or transport. For a small island Britain has been a pioneer in design for many years.

Below we take a look at seven iconic pieces of Great British design; we feel our picks either embody a certain something classically and timelessly British and are synonymous with our little island itself. Without further ado here are our picks:

Red Phone box

Bowler Hat

Jaguar E-type


Burberry Trench Coat

London Eye


Mini Skirt
